Being a disciple

This is a powerful statement of discipleship. As Jesus’ people we are following the Lord Christ. But we are also following the example of pastors, parents and many others who are themselves following the example of Christ. We each follow the examples we set one another.

This pattern of both following and leading is…

A Biblical Framework for Curriculum Design

At SM, our deepest hope and desire as Christian educators is to point our students to Jesus. Whether we are engaging with the latest curriculum reforms, designing dynamic learning tasks, or developing and nurturing our students, this our ultimate purpose. As our teachers sit and wrestle with new syllabuses, we always ask ourselves, “How can I teach this concept from a Christian perspective?” or “What biblical threads, or common themes, can be woven throughout this unit to help direct our…

Getting the mission clear

Our Junior School was visited by Independent MP, Dr Sophie Scamps, who was keen to learn about what our students considered important about their school. As Dr Scamps moved throughout the Junior School, she heard our students stating their love for Jesus and his word over and over again. A passionate young man in…

God calls us to be joyful in all circumstances (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18). This is something that requires a trust in God as he actively works in us to love and serve him.
